1% of the general population are psychopathic but among managers this increases to 7%, says Kellie Vincent in an article on the subject published in Metro. With so many psychopaths on the lose, how do you best protect yourself?
Kellie says: "The concern for all of us is that we may have psychopaths sitting at the next desk. The best advice is really to avoid them as long as you are able to and don’t expose yourself to their manipulative behaviour. Admittedly, this sounds like running away so if you can’t distance yourself, find ways to detract attention and get some allies on side."
